Description

Over hundreds of vintages, the châteaux and their winemakers have become very skilled at emphasizing the individuality of their vineyards. There is general agreement that the styles of those "top three" châteaux are discernibly different.

 

Overall, however, there is still an identifiable Pauillac wine style: full, rich, and characterized by the classic cassis-and-cedarwood aromas of oak-aged Cabernet Sauvignon. They are typically regarded as having the most powerful tannic structure of the Médoc communes, and are often capable of long ageing in the cellar.

 

Red Bordeaux Blends are known for their powerful structure and deep flavors. Dark fruits and berries such as plum and blackcurrant are commonly used to describe the flavors of red Bordeaux, although there is an unlimited range of terms that have been ascribed to them. Tannins tend to be relatively high in these wines, giving them a firm structure.

 

tasting note: "Medium ruby-red color. Very tight, closed aromas of cassis fruit are dominated by graphite & cedar on the nose. The palate is also very cedary & tight, the underlying blackcurrant fruit seeming watery. Acidity is fresh & the structure is of mid-weight, rather than powerful. Alcohol is balanced & the finish has good length but currently shows little fruit. The wine's length suggests the fruit should open with time."
